    What is an Aircraft Actuator?

    An aircraft actuator is a device installed in an aircraft that transforms electrical signals into mechanical movement. Aircraft actuators can regulate velocity and engine speed by moving levers and flaps. Key functions of actuators include adjusting flight control surfaces (rudders, elevators, ailerons, flaps, slats, and spoilers), positioning the engine inlet guide vanes, extending & retracting the landing gear, and opening & closing the cargo or weapon bay doors.

    Covid-19 Impact

    The COVID-19 pandemic impacted the aerospace industry, compelling industry participants to restructure their strategies and prioritize survival. The aerospace actuators market could not escape and witnessed a decline of 12.8% in 2020. The market further declined in 2021, due to slow air travel recovery paired with the halt in deliveries of B787 aircraft.

    The rapid recovery in air passenger travel, coupled with huge aircraft order backlogs, is helping the market recover from 2022 onwards.

    Recent Market JVs and Acquisitions: An inorganic growth strategy remains preferred. Several crucial M&As led to several changes in the competitive landscape.

    • In 2022, Parker Hannifin Corp acquired Meggitt PLC for US$ 7.24 Billion. The acquisition further diversified Parker Hannifin Corp.’s presence in the market and expanded its portfolio of electromechanical actuators in the aerospace & defense markets.
    • In 2019, Parker Hannifin Corp. acquired Lord Corporation for US$ 3.675 billion (approx.). The acquisition expanded Parker Hannifin Corp.’s portfolio of materials science capabilities, electrification, and aerospace product offerings that are highly complementary.
